On my part, I have an old tri hone sharpener that doesn't use electrical power and insists on eyeball judgment on the angle of the blade.
I think I'll keep my old way. I've had it for 20 some years. A sporting goods store was overstocked and I paid less than $10 for it.
Just too many hunting, fishing, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner's have seen it used.
Newbies sure have expensive tastes these days. Why they'd have me in receivership!
my buddy has a lansky and he can put a good edge on his blades.just looking for something that may be a little less time consuming,and also may be able to do multiple blades in shorter time frame.also have the ability to put an edge on a hatchet or a meat cleaver.
Thanks for reminding me to touch up two hunting and fishing knives, four kitchen knives, and one kitchen meat cleaver.
Long paid for, cheaper, Arkansas stones still work for me.
Just finished rebuilding a mail box post that rotted out and used some home made grease to touch up the leather muzzleloader possibles bag.
All done with little or no money. Just can't avoid it.
I have the Worksharp sharpener. It is electric with belt drive, and has 3 changeable belts. Gets knifes very sharp, like a professional sharpener. It is sold at many stors such as Cabela's, Bass Pro. Then I also bought a strop to put a nice finish on the blade. I also have a fine diamond stone that I use for tune ups.
